I am not going to write up a new post. I just wanted to update that Rafa will play Berlocq on Wednesday. Tommy Robredo was able to beat Marc Lopez in three sets and will next face Grigor Dimitrov. I like Nico’s chances of going far in this tournament; he plays Dodig tomorrow. (I think Feli is healing from some operation he had earlier and that’s why he isn’t playing here.) *And perhaps not a big shocker, but Fernando is already out. I’m starting to think that he’ll never return to his 2010 form, and I’m not saying that as a hasty remark. The Madridista hasn’t found his groove for quite some time now. Good luck to all the guys playing on Wednesday!
*David is scheduled to play on Wednesday against Tursunov.
*Rafa will play the winner of Gimeno-Traver/Berlocq in his opening round
*On Tuesday there will be a tough task for Marcel! It’ll be his first time (along with Marc) on the ATP tour playing across the net against his younger brother Gerard Granollers who is paired up with Albert Montañes *M&M beat them 6-4, 6-4!
Tomorrow is the first leg for the UEFA Champions League and it’ll be FC Barcelona vs. Bayern Munich. I know the majority of the tennis players love soccer, so I hope they can all go to Camp Nou to watch it. Or at least watch it as a huge group and tweet us pics of themselves! 😉 Major whoops from my end, the first leg was indeed in Germany and FC Barcelona lost badly 0-4.
